A collection of one shots that just kinda leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
story 1: Girl falls for her mother's boyfriend, but gives up on him so her mother can be happy. Not too bad, but the girl and guy had better chemistry than he had with the mom.

story 2: Girl loves her cousin but has a girlfriend and has this fish that feeds off her malice. She finally confesses to him and it shows that the cousin might like her, but in the end stays with his girlfriend who was just a bitch. The cousins had good chemistry. This was probably the worst one.

story 3: Probably the best one. Guy confesses to his friend, but she rejects him. He gets depressed and see her hit by a car. He gets ahold of the headphones she always wears and her soul is connected to them. He can hear her. At the end he saves her by putting the headphones on her. It goes back to normal with them not talking. As he's walking him, she comes up to him and asks "Can we start off as friends" which I guess you can interpret that she started to like him because of what happened, but wasn't there yet.

story 4: This one was also decent. MC girl is best friends with this other girl and falls for her. They talk about how 2 people who ride a train car alone together will fall in love. The other girl's brother likes MC girl. The other girl tries to push them together, but MC girl is in love with the other girl. MC girl collapses due to stress. The other girl and brother are talking about MC girl. MC girl kisses her and runs out in confusion. The brother tells MC girl that his sister was the one who carried MC girl there. She runs after her and meets her at the train hoping to ride it with her again. It shows that maybe the other girl likes her as well. So the ending I guess can show that the MC girl was going to try again.

All in all, decently told stories with kinda shitty endings.
